Poor nutrition affects mental development By GEORGE STEPHENSON Herald Staff Writer More nutritional research and programs are needed for Canadians living in poverty because of the effect poor nutrition has on the mental development of says a University of Lethbridge education professor Stan a specialist in education of atypical says a child born into a family with a low standard of living has a greater chance of being physically and mentally deficient than a middle class baby a young child has been born into a family with a low standard of living with a mother who is unaware or cannot afford proper nutrients for the he could end up with learning Dr. Perkins says. And the problem is bad enough in Canada that more comprehensive research and data is needed. In a paper presented earlier this year to an international mental retardation conference in Dr. Perkins outlined statistics compiled by the Economic Council of Canada that showed more than Canadian families were living in poverty in 1969. Other statistics he presented showed that about children below the age of 16 were living in poverty. He the main focus for proper nutrition must be on the pregnant woman and the baby within the first six months of life. with children indicate the negative effect of malnutrition on the height and weight of children. more is the effect on brain particularly on the number of brain if malnutrition takes place during the period of rapid brain development six months before and six months after he says. But the first trimester of pregnarfcy cannot be overlooked because the during this has a greater chance of contracting disease. And this can cause various abnormalities in the child such as a hearing loss. Some studies have indicated that children undernourished in their first year had the poorest chance for full recovery in particularly for full brain Dr. Perkins says. But to combat the poverty and nutrition problem many issues must be involved. Poverty is much more than a lack of money. The problem includes a lack of education and and poor sociological he says. The total environment of the child has its effect on the child's physical and mental development And the child born into the lower socio economic class is confronted with the cumulative ill effects poverty has had on his mother. expectant mother from the poverty class is usually a poor reproductive risk because of her own lifelong poor health poor nutrition and poor he says. Dr Perkins says the problem could be combated with nutritional counselling for expectant mothers. one considers all the hazards and consequences of not having a proper prenatal nutritional counselling service available to the relatively low cost of implementing such a program on a wide basis would seem to be a wise and humane he says Dr. Perkins outlines a study recently completed in Montreal that reinforces the need for counselling of pregnant mothers in the correction of The study showed that babies born to women within the study who were given nutritional counselling had a rate of prematurity and prenatal mortality than babies born to women without the counselling. But availability of nutritional counselling for all pregnant mothers is not a panacea for combating the potentially poor development of children born in Dr. Perkins says. People living at lower income at cannot afford the food needed to meet these nutrient requirements. Another thrust against the problem is detection of childhood problems through early childhood education. This approach to prepare children for school while also detecting those who will have various difficulties has begun in the United States and is now spilling into he says But the system must be available to all he adds Early childhood education could be the first step in detecting problem children and could be expanded to include total screening of the new born infant before it leaves the hospital This in turn could be expanded to preventive programs for nutrition of the pregnant woman and nutritional counselling regarding the new born baby. The drawback now against a total scheme there are not enough professional resources and facility resources. In Edmonton there is a good system of screening before the child enters school but this must be done across the province. general area of and m particular of prenatal needs to be given high priority as a means of improving the quality of life and of reducing the severity of learning and behavior problems in all future Dr. Perkins says. Soviet emigration down MOSCOW On any given dozens of women and children crowd the waiting rooms of several foreign embassies in Moscow. They have come to apply for permission to live in another country. There is no law in the Soviet Union preventing free emigra- tion. But between this fact and a heavily guarded Soviet border post lies a frequently painful of social rebuffs and sometimes far worse. Of those who want to leave the Soviet no one knows the are being permitted to leave in far greater numbers than any other nationality group in the country. A number of non- Communist embassies in Moscow nurture lists of Soviet or duel nationality cases who have tried for years with varying degrees of success to persons who want to join relatives in the West. Persons who want to leave include Austral- and Americans. There is no way of determining the number of Soviet citizens who want to leave their either on a permanent basis or for visits abroad. It is a risk for Soviet citizens to even express a desire to emigrate. If often means at least anything from social ostracism to loss of jobs and other material freedom. Since an exodus at the time of the Bolshevik revolution and for several years emigration in any substantial numbers is a relatively recent phe- nomenon beginning in the present decade. In 1970 about Jews the numbers went to nearly In 1972 the figures more than doubled and in 1973 reached nearly The total since 1970 is about So far this year the average monthly outflow is down more than 20 per for reasons that may be seasonal or may in the mind of some that the demand to leave is tapering off. Others report that administrative procedures are becoming more with more authority on exit visa issuance being given directly to the police.

Dr. Richard Jenkin of Princess Margaret Hospital said on the weekend at the American Cancer Society's first national conference on childhood cancer that methods previously successful in treating the disease in adults now are being used in in whom the disease has been more difficult to diagnose and treat. One of the drugs being used is procarbazine hydrochloride a synthetic chemical derived in part from one of the rocket fuels used in the United States' space program Jenkin said the drug treatment was started relatively recently and employed only about 30 patients so but it produced Hodgkin's disease is a usually fatal cancer of the lymph system which kills approximately Americans annually. It strikes some new victims each has its highest incidence among those in their 20s for reasons still is about twice as common in males as females. In the last 10 steady progress has been made in prolonging the lives of victims by employing super voltage x- rays and drugs previously found effective against childhood leukemia. But until most of the reported experience was with adults Jenkin disclosed that a review of 109 children with Hodgkin's treated at his hospital between 1958 and 1973 has revealed marked progressive in the five-year survival rate for all stages of the disease. A five-year survival is regarded by cancer specialists as offering a good chance for ultimate cure. Jenkin said the rate increased to 95-per-cent for the 1969- 1973 span from 38-per-cent for the 1958-1964. He also said rates of which are always a problem with dropped with 57-per-cent of the most recently treated group going five years without relapses compared to 19-per-cent earlier. Jenkin attributed the gains to use of progressively extended radiation treatment for patients in the earlier stages of the disease and radiation plus a combination of several drugs for children in advanced and highly recurrent stages. The drug treatment is based largely on combinations originally employed at the U.S. National Cancer Institute in treating adult Hodgkin's patients. Ann Landers Dear Ann Okay. So I let a doctor talk me into having a mastectomy breast and now I need a head-shrmker because of that damned operation. I will never forgive myself for allowing such a brutal thing to DC done to me. I can't bring myself to accept a date for fear it might develop into an emotional involvement. How unfair for a woman to let a man fall in love with her when she can give him only a mutilated body. It's too cruel to even think about. Women who have had this operation are lying when they say it didn't change their sex lives How could it Sign me Too Late And Plenty Sorry Dear You DO need a and I hope you fine one soon. You say you a doctor talk you into a Unless the biopsy showed a no doctor would remove a breast. Be thankful the cancerous breast was removed because otherwise the disease would have killed you. Thousands of married women have had breasts removed and are enjoying sex as they did before. some husbands aren't able to accept the but they are ignorant any woman who loses a husband because of this hasn't lost much. Obviously you are love affairs and marriages have taken place after breast removals. I hope women who have experienced this will write to me. I will print their letters and prove that your fears are groundless. Dear Ann I am 13 years old and have been a fan of yours for a long but I sure wish you would print more letters from teenagers. We have and there aren't many places for us to go for help. For people have mistaken me for a girl. I am a boy. In stores they and even on the bus I've been riding for the driver still and stuff like that I'm sort of short and skinny with brown curly hair. Like all the other guys in my I wear my hair but this is not considered girlish because it's the style. I wear jeans and and I can't help it if a lot of girls wear too. They are copying US. As soon as I can grow a I but it doesn't look like that will happen for quite a while yet. What can I do A Him Dear The first thing you can do is cut off some of that curly brown hair. If you're wearing beads and knock those too. Pretty soon your voice will change and that will help. When someone you can reply in a ;
